About the property

1 Bedroom, 1.5 Bathroom Condo, central location in Sosua

If you are looking for a well-appointed condo in a safe, tranquil and beautiful environment, which is nevertheless a stone's throw from all amenities you will not find better value.

A one bedroom condominium, newly refurbished to a high standard by an American contractor. Nicely furnished and well equipped. The bedroom features a queen size bed, two large closets, bedside cabinet, computer desk, security safe for valuables, ceiling fan, A/C and an en suite bathroom.

The modern kitchen has plenty of dishes, utensils, pots and pans, blender, microwave, water cooler, full size oven and stove, coffee maker as well as a dining table.

The nicely decorated living area comes with a settee, two chairs and a coffee table, and there is a ceiling fan to keep you cool. From the living area there is access to the private balcony. With the provided cable tv you have access to over 100 channels (including several in English - ABC, TNT, HBO, Fox, ESPN, SPEED...). WiFi internet is also included.

The condominium buildings are separated from the hustle and bustle of Sosua by a large car park behind the building and extensive, well-kept sculpted gardens to the front, featuring mature shade trees and many tall palms. Relax on a lounger by the large swimming pool or sit in the shade of a tree in the garden and you would hardly know that a mere step outside the security gate will take you into the heart of Sosua. There are three restaurants within 100 yards (and many more nearby), three banks and a mini-market within 200 yards. A 5 minute walk will take you to the main nightlife, beaches, casino international supermarket and shops.

In short, for the money we are asking this is the best deal in town.

About Tim Wright

I was born and raised in the UK but I have spent most of the last 25 years living and traveling on boats in the Caribbean. My work involves photographing yachts, mostly when they take part in major Caribbean regattas. Apart from the photos on this prospectus you can see my work at Photo Action website.

Tim Wright purchased this condo in 2012

Why Tim Wright chose El Batey

After 25 years afloat I wanted a place ashore to 'sling my anchor' when I am not working. What immediately impressed me about Garden Condos was the sense of calm and tranquility once inside the secure gates, and how well kept the gardens are. The condo is pretty darn good too! As I am not planning to live permanently in the DR I wanted a place that is close to everything so I do not need a car.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I had a great stay with you in The Gardens. it is a very nice complex and a great apartment.

I appreciate your hospitality and look forward to staying with you again and reccommending your property to many of my friends.

One time in Sosua

  • 5 of 5

I arrived in Sosua late at night and the Manager (Franziska) had made arrangements with the security guard and they were waiting for me to arrive, and took me up to the condo which was unlocked and all prepped for my visit. It is a very nice condo looks exactly as shown and is quite safe. The surrounding area is a typical D/R residential not Main St in Disney World.

It was about a leisurely 10 mint walk o Sosua Beach and non stop shops and restaurants all the way right down to and including the beach.

The condo was perfect for me a single male and there were other couples in the complex who said they were quite happy with there places as well. I had access to 2 supermarkets for groceries both of which I walked to quite easily. There were enough pots and pans to cook anything I wanted but access to the BBQ was compromised due to some renovations on the patio.

Thanks Tim I enjoyed my stay at the Garden Condos.

The Best First Time Experience

  • 5 of 5

It was my first time in DR and it was a pleasure to stay at Sosua Gardens. It was just as advertised being secure, with a kind and friendly staff. The condo is far enough from the city center to be peaceful but close enough to walk to and from the nightlife. The condo was equipped whether you are cooking at home or having take out. I would surely recommend it for a single person, couple or friends. Franziska the property manager is a Godsend. I will surely stay there again.

A Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this property for the entire month of November 2014. I was fortunate to meet Tim as he was in the country for part of my stay. I had a few minor issues that were quickly resolved to my total satisfaction. The place is as shown in the pics. The property is very nice and at a central location in Sosua. I would stay there again in a heart beat.
